"Somewhere Else" as written by and Johnny Borrell....
You're an emotional wreck
You don't know who you are
You never say what you mean
And you keep your mouth shut
And your night stays still
And then you come and call on me
You say I just can't help myself
I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else than here
And I met a girl
She asked me my name
I told her what it was
She looked at me
I tried to explain
Exactly what I'd lost

But now I just can't help myself
I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else than here
You give me everything I need
But I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else than here
Just anywhere else
Just anywhere else than here

And I won't forget
No, I won't forget
No, I won't forget

When I saw you there
It was the first time
And you just walked on by
I was catching the sparks
That flew from your heels
Trying to catch your eye

But that was somewhere else
Yeah somewhere else, somewhere else
I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else, somewhere else, somewhere else
I really, really wish I could be
Cause I just can't help myself,
I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else than here

And no, I just can't help myself
I really, really wish I could
I've got everything I need
I really, really wish I could be
Somewhere else, somewhere else, somewhere else
I really, really wish I could be

    General Commentthe lyrics are pretty regular and simple, but for goodness sakes the tune and the way johnny sings makes it great....wow is all I can say. I always thought of razorlight as little 'shallow' but his singing over here really works.
    I think its about falling in love and somehow ending things badly with the person you wanted so much, hence wishing you could be somewhere else..

    General Commentwow! the honour of gettin to write the first comment for this song! well wat can i say its an amazing song sooo catchy and just really beautiful. i think it wraps up how everyone feels sometimes u just want to be in another place or at another time in ur life even tho u seem to have everything u need, theres just something inside u and u just dont wanna be where ur or in the situation ur in. johnny has an amazing voice and its really good in this, i liked this song before but when they played it live it just blew me away :-D

    General CommentYou're an emotional wreck,
    You don't know who you are,
    You never say what you mean.
    sometimes this is so true...

    General CommentThis song rocks. I love it so much. Like xxlianexx said, this is about wanting to be somewhere else, even though you have everything you need where you are now. I can really relate to this song. And it's brilliant

    General CommentDoes anyone have a good mp3 of this song? I can't seem to find one anywhere. I either get a looped version, or a radio rip. If anyone can get me one, just lemme know, thanks.

    Anyway, great tune. I definitely should listen to Up All Night sometime, seeing as all of the singles I've heard are great.

    Self-explanatory song, yet it's still really good.

    General CommentSimple Kind Of Boy go on imesh and you can get it FREE. wahey. i sound like an advert. (I'm not) i'm kindof psd off that i didn't get here first.
    so even though the songs self explanitory i know, i'm still going to bore everyone with what it means to me. wwwweeell. I've just come back from a snowboarding holiday in france and i have to be in school in approximately, err, 8 hours. and you wouldn't believe what an amazing time i had there, and so this song, as its so self explanitory explains alot of how i feel right now as you can probably imagine. have you ever felt that though? even if you haven't been anywhere else you want to be you still feel like you'd rather be anywhere else than where you are at that time. its one of the worst feelings you can have. i suppose this song doesn't really have any sort of deep meaning does it. it's just a perfect song for me.
